Dentosophie: a humanistic approach to dentistry

Dentosophie (DENTO from Latin wisdom tooth + SOFIA from greek) is a humanistic approach to dental therapy, which emphasizes the link between the status of oral health, psycho-the situation of the person and the overall health of the rest of the body.
Salute e armonia del cavo orale sono in questo senso il riflesso dello stato di salute dell’organismo nel suo insieme e ogni mutamento, terapia o trauma in esso avrà un effetto sulla tutta la persona. Malattie o disarmonie della bocca sono considerate indici di squilibrio nel soggetto e la posizione dei denti può rivelare a un bravo dentista una circostanza di perturbazione psicoaffettiva o psicofisica.
La dentosofia ci spiega che la parte destra della bocca corrisponde alla sfera maschile e materiale della personalità, mentre quella sinistra a quella femminile e spirituale. Come nella medicina tradizionale cinese, ogni dente rappresenta un archetipo psicologico: gli incisivi superiori rappresentano i genitori, destra il padre, sinistra la madre, il canino superiore destro esprime la forza, il coraggio, quello di sinistra l’amore e la rappresentazione del proprio mondo sociale… e così via per tutti i denti. In questo senso la carie è una piccola malattia che, in base all’archetipo coinvolto, segnala che c’è qualcosa che non va.

Secondo un approccio olistico alla medicina, la malattia e il dolore sono i sintomi di un disagio interiore e ogni individuo elabora ed esteriorizza tale sofferenza in maniera differente. A questo proposito i sintomi di una malattia non si considerano come semplici fastidi da sopprimere, ma come segnali di un corpo che tenta di restaurare la salute e, la malattia, se vissuta nel modo giusto, può condurre ad uno stato superiore di salute.
The term was coined by Dentosophie Montaud and Mathieu French doctors that inspired their anthroposophic theories (about the relationship between the patient's mouth, his body and the outside world) to the work of Soulet and Besombes doctors, who in 1953 introduced the first activator multipurpose made of rubber.
This instrument, at the time, was intended to replace, for the summer, the traditional orthodontic devices (which still require a lot of maintenance by the dentist and many office visits) so that the children, who were leaving for the holidays they had the big rebates on progress achieved. The victory was the fact that these soft devices, not only avoided the deterioration, but improvements procured.
Later Montaud and Mathieu were the first to explore the uses as well as a harmonizer and postural rebalancing psycho.
In the following 60 years many doctors pursued this avenue of research, alongside the orthodontic field knowledge with those in the orthopedic and osteopathic, until you get to consider that postural imbalances were certainly related to those of the oral and every man's rehabilitation cord is complementary and preparatory to another.
An incorrect closure of the dental arches, according to the Dentosophie, is caused by the alteration of some vital biological functions as sucking, breathing (which must be non-oral and nasal), swallowing and chewing.
The function of the activator is exactly that of redressing the position of the teeth through a re-education of the body to these functions, also acting on pathologies that accompany them, and on the ability of the nervous system to establish new connections, to avoid that achieved the desired result, floor plan everything returns as before.
The activator is used during the night and at certain times of day, together with the exercises indispensable to obtain the advancements in the treatment. With this tool the mouth muscles are reeducated gently and then, if necessary, apply the Taquets on the posterior teeth. In practice, this tool does is assist the body in breathing and swallowing phases, allowing cheeks and lips to find their proper function and consequently the teeth to return to their correct position in a totally natural.

In the beach also we bring a beautiful smile

This month we want to talk about the secrets to have a smile with white teeth gleaming.

And 'well it is known that a perfect set of teeth, or almost is one of the best cards we can give to us, not only immediately communicates a sense of hygiene and cleanliness but is able to make the overall look of a person more agreeable.
The moment is very important, think of all the photos we take every year during our holidays!

First of all we understand what determines the color of our teeth: Contrary to what you normally think is not nail varnish to give color to the teeth but the layer immediately below, the dentine.

The enamel is like an opaque glass that covers the dentin is that it can impart nuances more about the gray, yellow, reddish, brown or white, depending on our genetic inheritance. But the enamel participates to the "formation" of color that our eyes see it diverts the light (refraction) in countless ways, in fact the tooth, subjected to different light sources, seems to have different colors.

Despite being a very durable material and mineralized, the enamel preserves a certain porosity and as such can knocked over by substances and particles that can change color to dentin and enamel itself.

The enemies of the white: one of the main enemies of the white teeth we find cigarette smoking, mouthwashes with chlorhexidine, the natural aging and food pigments, such as those contained in coffee, tea, liquorice, in spinach and red wine, but also in artificial colors added to beverages or other food products.

A particular case is the accumulation of tetracicline absorbed during early childhood with the medicines. But not only among the enemies of white teeth also fall berries, newly appointed because of low per capita consumption, but what happens to our clothes even the teeth are stained from their intense color.

These enemies, "external" but there is a big dangerous enemy is ourselves and that through a bad oral hygiene ruin all our efforts for a gorgeous smile.
